Lock in you profit now. The only reason to hold would be if someone comes in with a higher price. That is always possible, maybe Starbucks. That merger would make sense. It would create a coffee powerhouse at different price points.
I sold a chunk of mine just last week @ 62 to buy some more ExxonMobil, so I mostly missed todays pop. I will definitely sell the rest if they merge with BKW. They were doing great on their own. Why mess with a good thing. Lock in you profits now.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Was he brought in to sell the company. How much will he make for giving us one good quarter, then selling the company. Nice job Marc. Long term shareowners will be the big losers. Will Canadians be as loyal as they are now when THI becomes an American company? I doubt it. Tim Horton's seems to be part of Canadians identity. They don't want to become Americanized. What a shame. We were on track to be successful without this merger. Didn't we learn from the Wendy's deal? I will ring the register now.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Tim Horton's has been doing the right thing since they were spun out of Wendy's. They have increased the dividend by 20+% a year and bought back stock every year. They had the right formula to be a shareowner friendly company. Now it looks like they will go back to being tied to a dog of a company. Just think, if THI had gone public instead of being sold to Wendy's, we all would be wealthy because the stock would have mirrored the explosive growth phase.
MRO is better than CVX.......really.......How?
Buy some shares in COP, CVX, or XOM, set it up as a DRiP and start accumulating shares and don't sell them.
Shell is an British Dutch company. I don't think that would be a problem. If Exxon wanted to buy BP, then there would be a problem.
Same here. I would like to know if it's a true spin off or not.
You forgot to say shareholder friendly. That is an important quality that I learned from ConocoPhillips. You can own shares in highly profitable companies, but if they don't share the profits with the shareowners, you are getting ripped off. COP treats their shareowners really well.
Here's a better idea. Don't sell it and reap the rewards of capital appreciation along with an ever increasing dividend.
It would be nice if they returned more of that cash to the shareowners instead of share buy backs that never reduce the share count.
